Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly in danger of missing season opener

Giants WR Odell Beckham, Jr. took a hit on his knee during New York's 10-6 loss to Cleveland early in the second quarter after an 18-yard completion.

Beckham was nowhere to be seen. He didn't warm up or participate at all.

According to the report, Beckham missing the first couple of weeks of the season is "not out of the question". Eighteen days is cutting it close. Head coach Bob McAdoo told the media that the injury that his star wide receiver had suffered was not as severe as it had looked.

The Giants' 2017 season slogan is catchy and direct: "He's Got An Ankle". We're taking it day by day.

Beckham's teammates were more optimistic and revealing.

And Beckham was walking around the locker room.

Q: Do you have an update on Odell's condition? . They're definitely a big part of the offense. "You don't want to put your mind on that". "If he was somewhere lying on the table or something, that'd be different".

Rodgers-Cromartie seemed to indicate Beckham was not in that category. "Odell is in high spirits right now and we're going to have him back". Vernon added he had no doubts that Beckham would be ready for the Cowboys.

The Giants return to practice tomorrow and next play Saturday night against the Jets. He's likely to miss the Giants' final two preseason games. Beckham didn't participate in the team's OTAs during spring because he wants a new contract. WR Tavarres King reinjured an ankle Monday night and CB Michael Hunter is in the concussion protocol.

Shepard, Lewis, and Rudolph have a combined 783 yards and 10 touchdowns in their professional career with Shepard accounting for most of the yards (683) and nearly all of the touchdowns (eight).

Beckham has led the Giants in receiving for the past three seasons, surpassing 1,300 yards in each and totaling 35 receiving touchdowns.
